    Exactly what have YOU done in that regard???


    Joe does a LOT for gay rights, saving the environment, fighting the "war on women" and ending income inequality: He stays at home and posts on RJ every waking minute.

    Now if that isn't "doing something" about these extremely serious problems, I don't know what is. icon_wink.gif

    The fact that you belittle those problems is just what I've come to expect from you...

    Earlier today, someone on here accused me of having white guilt and no pride in my heritage. Meanwhile, racism has gone on for 500 years. Racial profiling is the new Jim Crow, and it's going strong. We tell the rest of the world how to live when we treat people this way? You'd have to have ice in your veins to not feel guilt.

    I'm appalled that more white people don't care about these issues. I know straight people who feel terrible for how they treated their gay children, but white people by and large seem to want to say they don't give a single fuck about how they treat their neighbor. In fact, they flee from them. I don't. You can think I'm wasting my life in some delusional fantasy you're having, but you don't place much value on other people, and you're not one to judge the worth of a man.

    I'm guessing the truce is over, AGAIN!!! You and Art should really just get a room and grudge fuck this out. And I knew that our resident RACIST shit starter would weigh in on this.

    Whatever happens is not going to be good. It's a no win situation. I will NEVER understand the looting. Yeah, you are pissed that an injustice has occurred. Does that give you the right to smash windows and loot and STEAL? I don't think so. Only SAVAGES behave that way. Not rational human beings.

    Like it's not savage for a cop to gun down an unarmed teenager and shoot him 6+ times and leave his dead body in the street for a few hours?

    WTF, where did I say it's ok to gun down an unarmed teenager???? I really wonder about you Joe. So you think it's acceptable to loot and steal if an injustice occurs???

    I think civil disobedience is more than appropriate considering the situation. If it was me, I would want to rebel in a system that's going to call me a criminal either way based on the color of my skin.

    I actually think the people who don't get it are the savages. The whole country is barbaric for allowing racism to corrupt the justice system. The U.N. seems to have noticed, too.

    He does.

    But you have to understand that Joe sees the world in a very different way from the rest of us.



    I wonder about his views. He seems to HATE white people. Maybe he was left on a doorstep of a black family and that is why he has this attitude he has. So hot but with that racist chip on his shoulder. There must be a reason why?

    HottJoe saidIsn't the UN supposed to get involved when a minority group within a country is being suppressed and attacked by militarized police? They'd be present in any other country where human rights violations were taking place.
    Well only if a group of people are being wrongfully oppressed, not a teenaged thief being shot by police. The situation in Ferguson, Missouri is an internal affair and does not concern the UN especially when it has very serious humanitarian situations in places like Uganda, Syria, Russia, and North Korea.



    We, the gay community, have been oppressed by the religious right wing nuts in this country, like forever. Why then are 'we' not, or have not been invited to present our hate crime statistics and killings to the United Nations counsel to once and for all stop the brutal killings, attacks, hatred and discrimination on our people?


    Um, the United Nations has a entire commission on gay rights and gay rights issues are routinely front and center at the UN, which routinely debates resolutions to condemn gay rights abuses across the world after being addressed by those so persecuted, like the Russians who have testified before the UN's human rights panel.

    Before whining and drawing comparisons that make no sense, it helps to do some basic research to know what you're babbling about.

    Gay males are not immune to being ensnared by the dual traps of privilege and racism. Gay males are some of the worst perpetrators and promoters of segregation, and I'd argue that the Jim Crow mentality in the gay community is now much worse than it is amongst straights.

    It's only a matter of time before our straight allies discover how deeply unserious and hypocritical gays are about equality and inclusion, when we allow the exact opposite to fester amongst ourselves. I doubt our calls for "equality" will be taken seriously after that.

    MGINSD saidNo, what happened in Ferguson - and what might well recur if the grand jury returns no bill of indictment - is more reminiscent of the riots of the '60s, in which the black underclass senselessly destroyed large swaths of America's major cities, and after which the authorities foolishly appeased their trumped up demands, with resounding damage to cities, educational institutions, and society overall. The UN has no jurisdiction here and revealed itself as foolish for even taking the time to hear the gripes of this thug's survivors.

    Racial profiling is unconstitutional. Nothing is sacred in a country that uses tyranny against its own citizens.
    What racial profilingicon_question.gif There was no racial profiling. The cops just caught a young thug who wanted to rob a corner store. Granted the police overreacted but there was no racial profiling. You sound absolutely ridiculous every time you open your yap and start playing the race card. You are definitely too liberal for your own good. Grow up and get out of your ultra liberal fantasyland and come back into the real world.


    HottJoe is exactly right, you are the one living in an ultra right-wing fantasyland wherein skin color had nothing to do with Michael Brown's unjustified murder. The fact that you could glibly dismiss it with "oh, well, the cops overreacted, a kid is dead, la dee da" demonstrates the depths of conservative depravity, as opposed to HottJoe's humanity.

    The corner store had nothing to do with it, because Darren Wilson knew nothing of the then-unreported "roberry". Darren Wilson violated every known police protocol by trying to drag a kid into his police car thus starting needlessly brutal alteraction, then killing the kid in anger when the kid fled the fight. Only in Fox News world is murdering a fleeing suspect okay -- but the dead person is of the wrong skin color so of course Republicans have nothing but applause for this lawless cop.

    The point is that so-called "white" boys who make juvenile, teenage mistakes don't get shot down in the middle of the street by the police -- nor are they called "thugs" by right-wing racists, Republicans' new favorite substitute for the n-word. That kind of behavior in boys with the right skin color -- when not being treated lightly as juvenile delinquency -- is laughed off as boys being boys. Mitt Romney was a "thug" who bullied and beat up gay kids. George W. Bush was a "thug" who used drugs and could never stay out of trouble. How is it that they never manager to get shot and killed by police? Well, they're not "black" (and they're rich) so their "thuggery" makes them worthy of the Presidency in the eyes of conservatives.

    The oblivious hypocrisy of RepubliKKKans never ceases to amaze.

    The only reason I disagree is that I do not believe in inherited guilt. We are not responsible for the sins of our ancestors. However, it is our responsibility to work to end current social injustices regardless of who started them.

    Whether racism is more prevalent among gays than among non-gays is unclear, but certainly it is a problem. Regardless of sexual orientation, racism is less prevalent among better educated people.

    well, i know you don't like black people. thank you for telling me where you stand.



    Yep, he stands for ending the generational slavery of black people in America courtesy of the welfare state brought to us by Democrats.



    stop, man.

    i ain't in the mood to see some you dudes ready to scream "i'm a victim of discrimination because i'm gay" turning around ready to throw the "race card" or be on some bullshit ready to go there talking about "i'm white so i'm BETTER than black people", ready to wind up and spew their ignorance like the op is doing in this thread along with a few others.

    and the op had the nerve to talk about "we should fight for lgbtq rights". i'll tell you one thing. count me out if the op is in the group. he might as well join the republican party or the folks that don't like him. i got no love for any of you gay dudes that basically play the victim card but turn around acting all ignorant when the shit doesn't concern you where you're ready to join the same side that would beat your ass in a heartbeat. i can honestly see why some folks are real iffy towards drawing their support towards the lgbtq community because of people like scruffLA and MGINSD. those are the types of dudes that if they got caught up in an antigay attack, i would have absolutely NO sympathy or pity for them and if i could intervene to save them, i wouldn't either. i'd just keep it moving and let them handle that. some people in the gay community are more vile and disgusting and hateful than straight people are and they swear that they're the shit too. uhhh no. i dislike them MORE than the homophobes.


    I think you have me confused with someone else. I've never claimed "i'm a victim of discrimination because i'm gay" nor have I claimed "i'm white so i'm BETTER than black people" - so that portion of your post is flawed - at least as it relates to me.

    I do agree with you that "some people in the gay community are more vile and disgusting and hateful than straight people are and they swear that they're the shit too" - those would be the rabid liberals on here.





    Isn't this a typical angry, violent attitude and lyrics of the crazy, saggy pants, gun toting, under educated, thug, black & WHITE gansta rapper? I do not and will never associate with these types, this is why you SPazzy have been on ignore, you are inbreed with your violence and ignorance, a sorry excuse product of your environment and I feel a bit sorry for you that your life will be a short one, unfulfilling and in the darkness, you do live your life like a tragic republican violent over-lord icon_rolleyes.gif


    This is dam funny, and if this black man was my friend and ever attacked for being gay, I would surely step up to defend him, this black man knows whats up, and now we all know (DL)

    Hearing that these parents of Michael Brown had gone to the UN was as eye-roll-inducing as it gets. Not to minimize the death of Michael Brown, nor the grief the parents must feel, but this is yet another example of lawyer Benjamin Crump (who represented both Trayvon Martin's parents and now Michael Brown's parents) grabbing another 15 minutes of fame for himself and the parents of the deceased by blowing this up into a massive racial profiling issue that it is not. We will have to see what the Grand Jury's decision is, however I presume it will probably be no indictment because the facts will show a young thug who first stole from a store, then attacked a cop in his patrol car, then ended up shot dead - Period! If this were a white kid, we'd be hearing nothing about it. This has all been blown up into a national issue thanks to Crump and the so-called Reverend Al Sharpton. The Ferguson crowd will accept nothing short of a public lynching of the white cop, so the entire community will have to prepare for the irresponsible behavior of some who, unfortunately, will make the whole community look bad. I hope the police take a strong stance against any behavior other than peaceful protests.

    Completely agree and very well said. However, it's not just Crump and Sharpton who have exploited this. White House advisers attended Brown's funeral and Holder got involved too. It was clear that this administration completely exploited the case to increase anger among blacks and hopefully get them more motivated to turn out for the election. Just another indication of what garbage this entire administration has become.

    Yup, shot an unarmed black teen 6+ times and left his dead body in the road. Totally standard police procedure according to white Republikkklans.

    It's a good thing the UN is involved. When it comes to monitoring the human rights of a minority group the buck doesn't stop with racist Uncle Sam, not should it, because racial profiling is the new Jim Crow, and many Americans would rather commit atrocities than own up to the truth.

    Hey Joe, I see you're up to your same old race-card-toting drivel. Michael Brown was hardly an innocent teen wondering the streets sucking on a popsicle. He'd just stolen from a convenience store where he also roughed up the clerk. He didn't need a weapon, he was potentially dangerous just being a 6'5" teenager with seemingly thug-like tendencies. I don't care what color you are, if you act out, break laws, mouth off to cops, you're asking for trouble. Is this a horrible tragedy? Of course. This kid didn't deserve to lose his life. That being said, had he been out not causing trouble, he'd still be alive. If Michael Brown were a white teen, not a word would have been uttered by the so-called Reverend Al Sharpton. There would have been no riots in the streets...comments by the President...thousands of mourners who didn't even know him attending his funeral. I'm simply telling it like it is. That doesn't make me racist.

    You said the same things about Trayvon Martin. You like to describe black teenagers as dangerous, but they're not more dangerous than white teenagers. A lot of teenage males get into trouble and act out, but typically they're not supposed to get shot in the streets, yet somehow every time that happens to a black teenager you're there to justify the killing. We can't have a country that guns down unarmed teenagers and shrugs and says it's just a tragedy, because it's an atrocity. The police and the majority of society have used racial profiling for years to justify violence against a minority community. The rest of the world and the U.N. obviously see it for what it is, and if unequal justice keeps going on, U.S. courts and the criminal justice system will lose all credibility and there will be more protests, more violence, and a weaker country.

    Who said they are? Not me. I'll let someone else do the research and post the data of what race --- white or black --- is involved in more violent crimes. I'm not suggesting it's one or the other because, honestly, I don't know. I have a hunch, but dare I guess and be proven wrong? Not in THIS crowd....Nooooooo icon_wink.gif

    There is no justifying Michael Brown being killed other than that it was a tragedy that wouldn't have happened had he not been up to no good --- i.e. theft, roughing up a store clerk, "allegedly" assaulting a cop in a squad car.

    The U.N. can't even decide what to do about Syria and Iraq --- and you think they care about Ferguson? Seriously?!?!? Could you be any more naive? As for "the rest of the world", I think it's a pretty safe bet that 99.9% of them couldn't find MISSOURI on a map...much less Ferguson.

    National Guard? I assume local official's know something that the public doesn't yet, like a no indictment is coming, otherwise, why go through the trouble if confident the officer will be charged with anything

    Missouri governor declares state of emergency in Ferguson
    http://www.cnn.com/2014/11/17/us/ferguson-state-of-emergency/

    Ahead of a grand jury's decision on whether to indict a police officer in the killing of Michael Brown, Missouri has both called in the National Guard and diminished the role of the Ferguson Police Department.

    @Cjaz, crime statistics point to racial profiling, which starts in the school system.

    The sad thing is, I remember a thread on RJ about a white teenager who committed mass murder, and nearly every guy that posted on that thread, except for me, claimed that the killer was a victim, as if being bullied pushed him into justifiably wanting to murder women. They wanted to hold society accountable for what he did.

    Yet on the same site, when an unarmed black teenager is shot to death, the same people are not here in his defense and saying he was a victim. He gets blamed for his own death, because he committed the unforgivable act of acting like a "thug." Supposedly. The same people who say society is responsible for white teens, say that society is not responsible for black teens and the trouble they're in.

    The racist bias between that thread and this one is undeniable.

    How can anyone justify what that cop did on any level? At the very least that cop was criminally out of fucking control. Aren't police trained to deal with unarmed civilians without having to empty their clip into them? The idea that he resorted to that much violence to defend himself against an unarmed civilian is ludicrous, but we live in a country that says if a white man is scared of a black teen he can call him a thug, shoot him dead, and say it was self defense.
